    Bugs are drying up here in the west by July. Spring is when the ticks and mosquitoes are out looking for food.

    In Michigan, we get ALL of August off..It’s against the law to go to school before Labor Day….That’s when we make the best tourist money because the weather is so nice….We need the kids to sell T-shirts and pasties…

    West coast has been so dry to really cut into the mosquito problem.

    The weather will heat up more in July here. Soon bikini-clad women will prance on the beaches on Michigan’s coast in great numbers during the humid and sunny weekends.

    Had brother-in-law from NW Ohio(you know that place just south of Deetroit) visit the other day in eastern NC. Said he was tired of Ohio cool weather, wanted some heat….after just one day of 98deg at 90% humidity, he queried how we live here.

    When I was growing up in Georgia, and even when I taught there, we always got out about June 5th and went back either after Labor Day for just before it. I remember on year the teachers decided to not issue books till they came back from Labor Day.

    So far a weak turnout of cicadas. Only heard a few for maybe a week then silence.

    Is this a 17-year year for you?
    We get a few “annuals” every year; but too soon for the big one.

    " … I remember on year the teachers decided to not issue books till they came back from Labor Day. …"
    -—————
    . . I remember in Michigan the coach/teachers and administrators decided not to issue books at all for many inferior classes. The textbooks for the other classes were marked up to the point of being unreadable because no one was in charge of keeping tabs on the condition of them. Keeping tabs of our textbooks seemed too much like work to these loud, rambunctious overgrown adult children that were our coach/teachers.
    . . But I will say our game day uniforms were of the finest and newest and cleanest quality. It was a funny feeling standing on the sidelines watching the game, the many of us boys, because we were not good enough to play. We were not athletes but were shanghaied onto the team. In all a hugely shameful and profligate waste of tax resources.

    You have kids selling pasties?!

    I really hope we’re defining that word differently!

    Are the pasties for the women swimmers?

    -
    Hard to know since there are several subspecies (≈3,5,17) and they are all staggered when they crawl out to molt since the cicada wasps are on the hunt every year.

    What are these “mosquitos” of which you speak? Flyin’ into DTW tomorrow, so I’ll probably find out, eh?

    A reference to the month of July with no mention of heat and humidity? I guess being out of school tickles the pleasure centers enough that it doesn’t bother him. Me, I can deal with bugs, but the heat? I’ll take the worst day in January over a muggy day in July any time.

    Chicago has a great summer music scene, but I’ve taken a pass on lots of interesting shows because of the heat. One Pitchfork Festival under the blistering sun was enough. This year, though, I’ll be at my first-ever Lollapalooza. Took Sir Paul McCartney’s name on the bill to make that happen. I mean, how many of us get to hear a Beatle play in person?
